OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Two Omaha health care companies have agreed to settle with the Nebraska attorney general’s office on charges of misleading advertising, marketing, distribution and sales of coronavirus antibody testing. AP sources report that Attorney General Doug Peterson alleged that Pivot Concierge Health and Banyan Medical Systems violated Nebraska’s consumer protection law and a federal deceptive trade practices law. Under a settlement signed this week, both companies must disclose the risks and limitations of COVID-19 testing products and comply with the law. Pivot Concierge Health must also pay $25,000 to the state.
